Game recognize game.  Chicks funneling beers and cool cops usually mean a magical night is ahead.  Meanwhile the last few times I have been at Citi Field, there have been cops busting balls about drinking and not a funneling chick in sight.  So congratulations, Philadelphia.  This Gif and Always Sunny are fantastic.  But the other 99.9999999% of things about your city stink.  Oh yeah, cheese steaks rule too.

I am going to rack my brain for the rest of the night to think of a better song.  But until then, congratulations Tony Cruz.  You are champion of Major League Baseball and champion of the world.  The eternal search for best walk-up song is over.

Philadelphia fans have a rivalry with the rest of the country/world, but last night was pretty awesome.  When Tony Gwynn Jr. came up to bat, the entire crowd gave him a standing ovation after the passing of his legendary (and from all accounts extremely friendly) dad.  I may not like you Philly, but Goddamn it I respect you (for one night only).

Also, great work by the umpire and Saltalamacchia to clean the plate and have a meeting at the mound to let the ovation last longer.  Class acts for a fallen class act.  Good stuff

PS- This clip of Gwynn Jr. going back and forth with a fan a few years ago was pretty terrific.
